About Rockaway Beach in Pacifica:
Rockaway Beach is a narrow gently curving stretch of strand anchored by high coastal bluffs at either end with rock embankments along the shoreline to prevent further erosion. Its crashing surf, trail amenities, sunsets and dramatic headlands make it a beloved destination for locals and visitors alike.

Site Captains:
Llana, Nicole, Sara and Vilka
